Parent Reviews

  • "I was a very anxious first time parent leaving my daughter at nursery for the first time. The whole Kindred Bournemouth team were fantastic in updating me on how she was and provided a very thorough tour and induction programme. Since returning to nursery after lockdown I was again very anxious, but it was like my daughter had never been away, she's in a bubble with her key worker and getting updates throughout the day via the app put me at ease."


  • "My son (three) and daughter (four) have been attending Kindred for eight months and they absolutely love it. The way that they returned to nursery so willingly after ten weeks off during lockdown, is a testament to the excellent staff members there and the range of activities they do with the kids every day."


  • "Kindred is a very good nursery. The way they have dealt with the pandemic has been great. They are doing their best to avoid any infection and get children returning to nursery. My son has been going for about two and a half years and really enjoys it and I intend to send his little sister soon. Well done and thank you to the Kindred team."


  • "Kindred Nursery has been brilliant, my daughter has been with them for 6 months and has come on loads, she has become more confident. They have taught her to eat lovely and the chef at the nursery offers an amazing menu."

    A Parent

  • 'They have handled the pandemic brilliantly and always have the children's best interests at heart. Communication is great and they have an app where they manage everything from nap times to observations complete with pictures. I get updates on this throughout the day which is lovely. I would not hesitate to recommend this nursery to other parents.'
